A lot of people say it that way...in Oregon.

If you have been exposed to the amount of lacquer fumes that I have, the articulatory phonetics can be a problem...just kidding.
Ran a biz for years making furniture, finishing furniture, doing special effects on ceilings and walls and then, a business where I actually made some good money...making handmade wallcoverings (code word for expensive wallpaper.)

Checking this site out and trying to stay out of trouble.

Welcome to the forum! I'm in Corvallis.

I always phonetically spell it "Ory-gun".
It kills us to hear it pronounced "Ory-gone". And you might get killed if you say it that way out here.

Hey Swen, welcome.

I've got a couple older sisters in Portland, they try to get me out there.
Cool part of the country.

and yes, I do follow the Ducks. My son in law graduated from Oregon, played football so it goes with the territory. Even drove down to San Jose for the first game of the NCAA BB playoffs...

the uniforms for the Ducks....could be a topic of discussion I suppose...
